Muir slams those who left suspect car at Newtownhamilton police station

Alliance Newry and Armagh candidate Andrew Muir has condemned those who left a suspect car outside the police station in Newtownhamilton in the early hours of Tuesday. The car was left on Shambles Lane near the police station at around 02:00. Up to 60 families have been evacuated from the area.

Andrew Muir said: “I utterly condemn those that left this suspect car near the police station, their only intention is to cause death, injury and disruption. This is a worrying development given the car bomb that exploded on Sunday night.

“The public do not want this small minority to drag us back to the dark days when there were threats on a daily basis across the country. They have next to no support and I hope the community unites to call on them to stop.

“Anybody with any information about this incident should contact the police. We must show these people that their campaign will not be successful.”
